Open Session.   The first place winner of the open session will receive a $500 scholarship to attend LSU. A student may win and use only one LSU Mathematics contest scholarship award. It must be used while the student is a full time degree student at LSU and within 5 years of winning the contest.

Trophies will be given to the first, second, and third place finishers in the open session. Cash awards of $50, $25, and $15 will be given to the first, second, and third place finishers.

Certificates of meritorious performance will be awarded for strong papers. A certificate and a book will be awarded to the highest scorer from each school.

Algebra/Geometry session.   Students will be asked to mark YES on their answer sheet if they are presently taking algebra II or have completed it. They mark NO otherwise. Their answer places them in one of two categories. For those students who answer YES trophies will be given to the first, second, and third place finishers and, correspondingly, cash awards of $50, $25, and $15. For those students who answer NO trophies will be given to the first, second, and third place finishers.

The school of the first placed team will win $100 and the school of the second placed team will win $50. In the case of hybrid teams any cash award will be divided proportionally among the schools represented. Home schools are excluded from cash awards. In no cases will individual participants receive cash awards.
